2013 Stony Hill Vineyard Chardonnay | Spring Mountain District Napa Valley California 750ml



Stony Hill Vineyards are the perfect example of a family owned and operated wine growing and wine making property that has been doing things right in the Napa Valley for decades. Their vines have been established in the Spring Mountain District since the 1940s and they have maintained their Old World minimalist style since their first harvest in 1952. | Falling Bright

Stony Hill Chardonnays are some of the most respected and highly-sought-after California wines in existence. Their style is best described as lean, bright, elegant and food friendly. To achieve this style, we crush and press the grapes with minimum skin contact and ferment in neutral oak cooperage. When fermentation is complete, we rack the wine off the lees, in order to avoid the development of a yeasty flavor in the wine. We then age it in the neutral oak barrels, most of which are well over ten years old, allowing the wine to develop and mature without absorbing an oak flavor component that could mask the natural fruit. In addition, we avoid a secondary (malolactic) fermentation in order to maintain the original acid structure of the wine and protect the fruit's inherent citrus and apple components. We have done one major Chardonnay replanting, in 1986, making the average age of our current vineyards approximately 30 years old again.| Stony Hill Vineyards
